  Pastoral Council St. Peter’s Basilica - Interior view  

Vatican II urged active involvement in the life of the Church by emphasizing the principles of collaboration responsibility,
consultation and lay participation.

Pastors know that Christ did not mean for them to shoulder alone the entire mission of the Church themselves. A Pastor
needs to consult with the laity who in turn have the right to express their views and concerns to the Pastor. An important structure to foster this collaboration in the mission is the Parish Pastoral Council.

Code of Canon Law, 536 deals specifically with Parish Pastoral Councils, "A pastoral council is to be established in each parish;
 the pastor presides over it, and through it the Christian faithful along with those who share in the pastoral care of the
parish in virtue of their office give their help in fostering pastoral activity. This pastoral council possesses a consultative vote only and is governed by norms determined by the diocesan bishop.

The St. Agnes Parish Council meets once a month, September through June.  

Members serve three-year non-concurrent terms.

The members of the Pastoral Council are:
Jackie Rodriguez
June Cosgrove
Tom Nofi
Rob Wiedenhoft
Tom Glynn
Theresa Cove
Mary Beth Croutier
Maureen Luvin
Kevin Mulry
Greg Smith
Michael Smyth
